In April 2014, Microsoft had bought Nokia’s mobile business in a $7.2 billion deal. While Microsoft Mobile managed the Lumia business, they had agreed to keep the Nokia tag on the phone, which they have now decided to phase out. The news of this marketing change came a month ago when Nokia France put up a Facebook post that mentioned that it would be changing its name to Microsoft.

Since last week, there have been leaked images on the internet that have also given the specs of the device. When Microsoft unveiled the new Lumia 535, there were not too many surprises since it had already come out in the public through various websites.
